Juliana Hatfield & Pool Holograph at Lincoln Hall

  • Lincoln Hall 2424 North Lincoln Avenue Chicago, IL, 60614 United States (map)

Tickets and information:

"'I wasn’t planning on making a record,' says Juliana Hatfield, of her new 'Pussycat' album. In fact, she thought her songwriting career was on hiatus, and that she had nothing left to say in song form; that she had finally said it all after two decades as a recording artist.

"But then the presidential election happened. 'All of these songs just started pouring out of me. And I felt an urgency to record them, to get them down, and get them out there.'

"'Pussycat' is being released into a very tense, divided and inflamed America. The songs are reflective of that atmosphere—angry (“When You’re A Star”), defiant (“Touch You Again”), disgusted (“Rhinoceros”), but also funny (“Short-Fingered Man”), reflective (“Wonder Why”), righteous (“Heartless”) and even hopeful (“Impossible Song”, with its chorus of ‘What if we tried to get along/and sing an impossible song’)."
